The Oath of Hippocrates 

ISWI^HR by Hpollo the physician, &c Hcsculapius, & Hygeia, 
and Panacea, and all the gods and goddesses, that according to 
my ability and judgment I will keep this oath and this stipmV 
tion: to reckon him who taught me this flrt equally dear to me as 
my parents, to share my substance with him and relieve his necessities 
if recjuired; to look upon his offspring as my own brothers and to teach 
them this Hrt, if they shall wish to learn it, without fee or stipulation; 
and that by precept, lefture, and every other mode of instruction I will 
impart a knowledge of the Hrt to my own sons and those of my teachers, 
and to disciples bound by a stipulation and oath according to the law of 
medicine, but to none others. I will follow that system of regimen which 
according to my ability and judgment I consider for the benefit of my 
patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I 
will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such 
counsel; and in like manner I will not give to a woman a pessary to pro-' 
duce abortion. With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and 
praftise my Hrt. I will not cut persons laboring under the stone, but 
will leave this to be done by men who arc practitioners of this work. Into 
whatever houses I enter I will go into them for the benefit of the sick 
and will abstain from every voluntary aft of mischief and corruption; & 
further, from the seduftion of females or males, of freemen and slaves. 
Whatever, in conneftion with my professional prafticc or not in connec 
tion with it, I see or hear in the life of men which ought not to be spoken of 
abroad,I will not divulge,as reckoning that all such should be kept secret. 
While I continue to keep this oath unviolatcd may it be granted to me 
to enjoy life and the prafticc of the Hrt, respefted by all men &c all times. 
But should I trespass and violate this oath may the reverse be my lot.

CLASS OF 1956 



How about a story on the 
future doctors oi America? 
Surely, in all the medical 
schools in this country, there 
must be a class whose mem- 
bers typify the ideal medical 

What do I mean by "ideal"? 
Well, to begin with, it applies 
to both sexes. They would be 
personable; their white jackets 
would be worn as a symbol of 
their profession and not as 
mess jackets; they would be 
good students without being 
"grinds"; they'd take exams in 
their stride and never "clutch." 
On the social side, they'd throw 
great parties and put on "hit" 
class shows. Above all. they 
"stay loose." 

Finding such a class may be 
a large order, but I know you 
can do it.

It finally came. The third year started out 
with a church. Everyone was getting married, 
some in spite of themselves. But there were a 
few of us holding out for bigger and better 

The summer was delightful. We just couldn't 
wait for daylight to come to get over to the 
wards. And of course everyone looked forward 
to the afternoon tea with Bobbie Loeb, and the 
compulsory elective tennis matches with Dr. 

Dr. Dalton scared us into liking radiology, 
and was even nice enough to let us mark our 
own attendance. Of course no one missed any- 
way. But we did learn, thanks to a classmate, 
that by using a chest X-ray, one could demon- 
strate the presence or absence of pathology in 
the lungs! What won't they do next? 

Probably the most enjoyable afternoons of 
the week were those spent in psychosomatics, 
at least for those of us who didn't get enough 
sleep at night. 

It was wonderful to cast the books aside in 
exchange for a bed (we needed it!). How the 
patients would love to see us first thing in the 
morning, and were particularly disturbed if we 
didn't allow them to belong to the hematoma 
club for the day. 

Well, we didn't become good technicians, 
but at least they could have made us glorified 

Then there came Surgery and Anesthesia, 
when the alarm would go off just after we'd 
gotten in bed. It was stunning. How wonderful 
you felt being able to pass a laryngoscope 
blindly, and once we even got into the operat- 
ing room. (Someone had to wheel the patient 


till ei 

The class fell back on instinct when we got 
to Pediatrics. Everyone was a father or mother 
or at least wanted to be, and it was even sug- 
gested by some that there be an exchange of 
students for patients. 

How sympathetic we were to the young 
mothers, realizing of course this was their first. 
In most cases they were wonderful and you 
just had to pat the baby on the back once and 
the mother only three times. 

And the sweet little brats, the wonderful 
trickle of the ultrafiltrate down your arms (just 
for you) and the passage of the meconium for 
which you were then to thank them. They were 
very cooperative and in many cases taught us 
what we should have already known. 

The class, by handfulls, took a rapid tour of 
the specialties. Here, those whose lives had 
direction gave bold assistance to the group. 
Now, conceding to popular demand in the 
class, those who were to be Psychiatrists tossed 
natural shyness and humility to the winds, and 
volunteered their rich experience of sex and 
sanity for the benefit of all. Psychiatry was in 
the making! And what material Dr. Pollatin had 
to work with! 

One would have thought that before taking 
Opthalmology one would learn how to use the 
ophthalmoscope, but one was certainly dis- 
illusioned. They heard we didn't get enough in 
the 2nd year. Lantern slides are a lot better 

Brilliant diagnosticians were being made in 
ENT. Everything from acoustic neuroma to 
hemangiomata of the cords, but oh how many 
times we overlooked the tonsillitis and pharyn- 
gitis! But these aren't important anyway; 
they're not rare. 

Dermatology will be different (until we had 
it, but once we had it, we really had it!) 

And then comes that most enjoyable period, 
the elective, which takes classmates wide and 
far, from California to Maine, from pool halls 
to beaches. 

The class gave sanctuary to fugitives fleeing 
other citadels of truth. Lloyd Fisher, a modest 
(modest Hell!) fellow of questionable repute 
and always pleasant company (at beer any- 
way) had gone as far as he could at Dartmouth 
(for further details see Fleming). Pete Fleming 
had gone much too far at Hanover. At least 
there was a growing sentiment in New Hamp- 
shire that either Fleming or that accordion 
would have to go. Whereupon he headed 
south, accordion and all. There was another 
student (Al Kessler, I believe) who, I'm told, 
had broken all records at a second rate school 
in Boston and had gone as far as he could 
possibly go there, so he decided to leave Bos- 
ton and learn a little more in the big city. He 
was a great addition to the 3rd year basketball 
team; the record now stands at one win in three 
years. What wonders! 

The class was still naive for the most part 
about its future. The small number of individ- 
uals who felt positive at this stage of a direction 
in their lives were perhaps the most naive of 
all. In this year of relative freedom from super- 
vision, the only dependable truth was the 
elusiveness of material: the basic science not 
really mastered, the clinical pictures so quickly 
forgotten, and journals piling up, month after 
month, unread. In the face of so much indiges- 
tion it was a hopeful note that the great ma- 
jority of these boys and girls, daddies, hus- 
bands and wives, recognized the pitfalls of 
committing their minds too early to a decision.

To his many friends at P&S, the sudden, untimely death of Tom Anderson 
was a deep personal loss. Always a vital personality, Tom conveyed to all an 
unending good humor. The easy fashion in which he handled the many 
crises, large and small, of academic life was contagious. To some, his gift 
of anecdote surprised and brightened life. To others the ready strum of the 
"Anderson guitar" signalled the beginning of conviviality. To all, he was a 
sincere friend ready to give a helping hand. 

Tom was always an outstanding person. At Lewis and Clarke High School 
in Spokane, Washington, he was a standout member of many winning foot- 
ball teams. He was active in school clubs and still had time to be Saluditorian 
of his class. Following graduation he attended Yale University where he was 
an active member of Trumbull College, participating in athletics and the 
Student Council. He was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. Because 
of his outstanding personal attributes and scholastic ability Tom was elected 
to Skull and Bones Senior Society. He graduated with a BA degree in Soci- 
ology, Psychology and History in 1951. 

Tom showed a life-long interest in medicine. To this end he maintained an 
unswerving dedication. He was uniquely endowed with those qualities of 
humanity, humility, and integrity which make his loss an irreplaceable one to 
medicine and mankind. 

Thomas Hill Anderson was born January 13, 1929 in Spokane, Washington. 
Son of George Herman Anderson and Ruth Ellen Weisdorfer Anderson. He 
died May 28, 1953 near Columbus, Ohio on his way to Spokane. 

/John -Praams ff/ahew 

Born: May 3, 1929, New Haven, Conn. 

Son of Harold John Mahew and Lucy Adams 

Married: August 30, 1952, to Shirley Ann Ran- 

Passed on: September 19, 1952. 

Prepared at Oakwood Friends School, Pough- 
keepsie, N. Y. Class of '47, president of his 
class four years there. 

B.S. Earlhan College, Richmond, Indiana 1951. 

Attended Columbia University College of Phy- 
sicians & Surgeons, Sept. 13, 1951 to Sept. 19, 
1952, Class of 1955. 

Assistant to Dr. J. Wister Meigs at Yale Univer- 
sity on basic cancer research, summers 1950, 
1951, 1952. 

Beneath his ready humor and consuming interest in science, specifically 
medical science, was a steady kindliness and readiness to do for those around 
him. He was clear, however, in his conviction that "you really help people 
only when you do for them that which they cannot do for themselves." 

The John Adams Mahew Loan Fund, available through the Dean's Office 
to students facing emergencies, is in keeping with John's readiness to lend 
a helping hand at the time it was needed. 

Among his last words was a recitation of I Corinthians XIII which he had 
memorized. The passage ends, "AND NOW ABIDETH FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, 
that this means not only love of family, "but also love of God and love of all

This is the story, the uncensored lore 
Of the fabulous class of 'fifty-four; 
The greatest group to ever bless 
The sacred walls of P<£S; 
A brilliant, eager but modest throng. 
One hundred and twelve strong. 

(Eleven being girls.) 
We arrived in September, just a twig 
Fresh from the roots of the Ivy League; 
Bewildered, confused as many before 
We wondered about: the lost sixth floor; 
And where Charley's Desk got its name; 
And why elevators never came; 
And how lecture seats could be so hard; 
And who was the creep in charge of Bard; 
And where were the patients, and who's '"Uncle Bob" 
And exactly what was Rappleye's job. 

(The latter we still don't know.) 
After a fortune in books had been acquired. 
In spotless coats we sat inspired 
As Sevy called us a lucky crew. 
Out of thousands to be the chosen few. 
So we filled the forms and paid the fees 
And settled back to become M.D.'s. 

(We were just freshmen and didn't know.) 


We started with Elitman who descriptively scanned 
The multiform functions of the mammary gland. 
And introduced .us all at last 
To the thirty less fortunate in the class. 

(That's not including Albert.) 
Silent Ely and Daddy Det- 
Wiler (and wilder). How could we forget: 
The Saturday mornings when no one came 
Anatomists all taking off for the game; 
The fill-in exams, and trying to cram 
The brachial plexus from Cunningham; 
The "hawt saund" machine that went out of whack, 
Skipping rope to a portion of the intestinal tract 

(And cleaning out the same); 
Playing musical chairs, and the fruitless try 
In fifteen seconds to identify 

With one tenth knowledge and nine tenths luck 
A mummified, misplaced cystic duct; 
Dissecting the neck with precision and grace 
To have Agate spill ashes all over the place; 
"Long John" and No-Hands and Ronnee's scream 
Over surgical procedures in the perineum; 
Olympian tops and the other chants 
About Oswald's * and Tilly's pants. 

(* Censored — Ed-) 
These we remember but fiddle-dee-dee 
We've forgotten the rest of anatomy. 

There's histology too, remember the way 

We memorized Baily from Z to A? 

The mad rush to join the front row boys 

For fear that Whispering would lower his voice, 

The practical slides made from pulverized skin; 

The mass migration for coffee at ten; 

Copenhaver's monotone. Dr. Johnson's legs, 

And Engel implanting fertilized eggs. 

(All of it is best forgotten.) 
(We almost forgot embryological nods 
To Daddy Detwiler and the book by Dodds.) 
And neuroanatony where Elwyn would keep 
Turning on lights so we couldn't sleep. 

(The majority slept anyway.) 
Noback's lectures if that's the word 
For garbled Greek, incomprehensibly slurred. 
But we got our revenge the memorable day 
When Stooky threw one of the Questions his way 

And Noback didn't know the answer. 
The bimanual dexterity of Riley's art. 
And the many times we were torn apart 
By Dr. Stookey. The search for a seat he might ove 
The pointing finger, the knees that shook 
As we approached the pit in anxiety sweat. 
And left it with scivies perceptively wet. 
The box of slides we overlooked 
By copving pictures out of the book. 
Our first oral quizzes, and trying to guess 
What was peripheral and what C. N. S. 
These we remember but fiddle-dee-dee 
We've forgotten neuroanatomy. 

From mid-year on we had to cope 

With biochem and making soap; 

Taking quizzes, and with moans and groans 

Trying to solve those damned unknowns 

(With clues from Dr. Gillespie). 
There were many experiments we quietly shirked. 
And Coles proved to all the shower worked. 
Sperry considered cholesterol 
While Miller mentioned the millemole. 
There was farmer Foster and Doctor Clark 
(The biochemist's patriarch.) 

We sat through their lectures in acid-burned coats 
Then thanked the Almighty for Tony's notes. 
That was biochem, pristine and pure 
In sharp contrast to the eleventh floor. 

(Now to grind some axes.) 
The physiology lads, forever employed 
With a humor that would shock even Dr. Freud. 
The gray-haired Magnus in charge of the crew. 
Whose claim to fame is Evans Blue, 
Who obliged the class by a well timed skip 
To the Pacific Isles on a two months trip. 

(But we still had to look at the pictures.) 

Saving lives 

And next to him Root, who let us down flat 
With his lectures on SEX (in the decorticate cat). 
And we can't forget Wang, our faithful mentor 
Lecturing on wagus and womiting center 
And pulling his moth-eaten morsel of joy: 
"What you got there — tiger, boy?" 
Cizak's glee at our diuresis; 
The week's vacation for a ten page thesis; 
Pithing the poor defenseless frogs; 
Cannulating mangy, mongrel dogs; 
Smoking the drums, shellacking the same 
And cursing the day that we ever came 
To medical school. 

So much for the classes, they were just a crumb, 

A minor part of the curriculum. 

For the test tube, kimograph. and dissecting knife 

Took second place to our social life. 

In late October we were able to throw 

Our first class party with a first class show, 

A roaring success, a drunken brawl 

And immediately apparent to all 

That our brilliant class, though medically inclined 

Were rivals to Rodgers and Hammerstein. 

(Not to mention Rodgers and Hart.) 
Our Saturdays were spent with alumni zeal 
At Princeton, New Haven, or Baker Field, 
And Sundays with aspirin, attempting to right 
The gross indiscretions of Saturday night. 
There was fall rushing too, and the terrible three: 
Phi Chi, Nu Sig. and P. D. E. 
The autumn passed, like a ship in the night 
And Christmas vacation soon hove into sight. 
And before vacation the dance at Bard 
Where bona fide carols are annually starred; 

(Dig that crazy pun, man.) 
Where the first year find out, if they find out at all 
The squash courts have uses beyond playing ball; 
Where the morning after, for those who might go 
Dr. Elwyn downs pitchers of HO. 

(All of the above is so traditional there's ivy on it.) 
Then after vacation back to the grind 
To wrap up anatomy and leave it behind 
For greener pastures, the springtime glee 
In biochem and physiology. 
When spring had sprung, like birds and bees 
We found our life was one of ease 
With many repressions to gratify 
So Gracious Living became the cry. 
Out of the labs by half past two. 
For a quick game of tennis, then a T. G. brew. 
Then after supper we had our pick 
Between bridge and TV and the Uptown flick. 
In addition to all this, how we don't know 
We had time to compose our second show. 
(That was where the eight donned curls, 
Danced their debut as Can-Can girls. 
And made the show a roaring hit 
With bras that fell and tights that split.) 
Our spring was spent in revelry 
Interrupted in only a minor degree 
By final exams, which we managed to pass 
In spite of the efforts of the second year class 
To keep us awake until six a.m. 
On the night before our biochem. 

(With bagpipes, et. al.) 
With the end of exams, came the end of school, 
Muntz and Klip went to Europe as did Prickett and Gould; 
Doug and Done got married, and as for the rest 
Some went to camp and some went west; 
Some combed the beaches and slept and ate 
And tried to forget the horrible fate 
Awaiting us with sadistic leer 
In the form of a man-eating second year. 
It was our last vacation for quite a spell 
So we sowed our oats and raised our hell 
And found the summer too quickly passed 
With September rolling around at last. 
So shot and bent and broken and beat, 
With heavy hearts and stumbling feet. 
We staggered back from our three months' spree 
To Harry Rose and Smith, H. P., 




To the fourteenth floor our second year home. 

We dedicate this part of the poem. 

To the fourteenth floor with the faucets that leaked. 

The broken stools, the air that reeked 

Of autopsied humans, and the urineous smell 

Of clinical path. We remember well 

The hours we wasted doing CBC's, 

Drawing cartoon replicas of human disease. 

Doing thousands of Gram stains, and hunting like fools 

For worms in some Puerto Rican's stools; 

And the four hour "quizzes" we patiently took 

Filling blue book on blue book on top of blue book. 

(And all of it so much .) 

Most of all we recall that day in May 
When we emptied the desks and stole away 
With kyphotic backs and tails that bore 
Scars from the seats of the fourteenth floor. 
But in spite of the rat-race, in spite of the strife. 
We were well prepared for our future life 
In the Great Beyond, for we know damned well 
There's a fourteenth floor someplace in hell 

Where we'll be perfectly at home. 

But we must return from our reverie 

To the sacred subject of pathologv. 

The basis of medicine, so we're told. 

In mid-September, back in the fold 

With erasors and razors and pencils three 

And specific instructions from bespectacled H. P. 

We learned how to draw and tested our skill 

By dotting in dots in the basophile. 

We found that eos were red, nucleoli blue. 

And plasma cells had a purplish hue; 

But try as we might we couldn't win. 

What was too big for Coon was too small for Flynn; 

What suited Steward was abstract to King, 

And Seronde would ask: "What the devil's that thing?" 

As he pointed to the portrait we'd done so well 

Of the typical, atypical anarchistic cell. 

(Surrounded, of course, by policemen.) 
Like nightmares we'll remember the rest of our life: 
The Gunfaghter wielding a wicked knife; 
Coming lated to lecture (if we came at all) 
When H. P. would cry, and the heavens would fall 
On the next weekly quiz where questions would pour 
From subjects we'd covered two months before; 
The gross path meetings and the sterile string 
Of Priceless Pearls from Donny King 
(For example, the incidence of suspected argyria 
Since 1903 in southern Siberia); 
The oral sessions, oh horrible bore 

With cowboys and Indians and the fire-fighting corps; 
Or if Flynn were present the endless feed 
Of questions to MISS Lewis and D. T. Read; 
The marathon exams, for four hours straight 
Beating our brains to regurgitate 
Pathological reams of mimeographed notes 
Filled with Pickwickian Smithian quotes; 
Taking exams, then waiting with fear 

For the infamous S List to appear. 

Although it was grim, it had its bright half 

In the streamlined course of neuropath: 

With Abner's lectures: **!!:: pretty pic . . . 

And Abner's notes ::;:: o retoric ..11 

And Abner's lab ,,::-* Where were we ????!! 

Fast asleep ::: dark room p.c. Ill 

There were autopsy days, awaited with glee 

Since they kept us away from pathology; 

There were many peepshows which saved us the part 

Of composing inscriptions to go with our art; 

There was Vassar as British as afternoon tea 

With an American's interest in the feminine knee. 

And Flvnn as American as Coney Isle 

Dressed in the latest London style; 

And last but not least, the Flynn-Plimpton fight 

Bringing humor to an otherwise humorless plight. 

In addition to path during the fall 

Bacteriology stained us all. 

Surrounded by microbes from our head to our toes. 

With detailed instructions from bow-tied H. Rose, 

We massacred rats and grew diplopic 

Trying to see all those bugs microscopic; 

We grew our own cocci (excepting GC); 

Seeded our lungs with bovine TB; 

Learned to produce with incredible ease 

Synonymous names for human disease, 

(Lues, rubella, AFB, etc.;; 
We injected the thrombosed ear of the rabbit 
With some witch's brew concocted by Kabat; 

Bled each other, grew deaf lo the groan 

As the end of the needle struck solid bone; 

Awaited with fear the typhoid days 

And the resulting period ot general malaise; 

Sat in confusion, in utter dismay 

Through the immunochemistry of Kabat. A. 

(To quote: They overlap because they go at 

the same rate, either because the concentration 
of antibodies was different so that they 
overlap. A. Kabat. October 26. 1951.) 
Though Howe was a master. Rose was a whizz 
At constructing a merciless short-answer quizz 
Where the answer was plain as plain could be 
That only God could pass bacti. 

In December we bid a fond adieu 

To Harry Rose, and passed into 

The waiting arms oi Doctor G. 

And his department of pharmacology. 

Gilman sitting cross-legged and generously 

Teaching us the physiology 

We hadn't been taught before. 
Like Abner Wolf, in Kolle we found 
A second man who could out talk sound; 
Going like the proverbial bat out of hell 
He lectured on drugs we couldn't spell 

(Much the less remember). 
And Bartlestone. Doctor of Dentistry, 
Professing on anesthesiology 

And cleverly assuring the house would be packed 
By always having his wife in the back. 
And all too frequently we were blessed 
By a multiple choice, hour-long test; 

(With two hours worth of questions.) 
But worse than the quizzes, we found ourselves vexed 
With Goodman and Gilman's medieval text. 
Although they promised that they would bring 
The new edition out that spring. 

(It's two springs later and we're still waiting.) 

So much for the second year's so-called big three: 

Pharm and path and, of course, bacti. 

But strike up a tune and lead a small cheer 

To the minor quartet which complete second year. 

Let's sing a song, with a cynical laugh 

To the non-clinical course in clinical path; 

To the punctured fingers and futilities 

Of normal urines and CBC's; 

From Helen and Charlie and the rest of the bunch 

(Who left at 10:45 for their lunch) 

To the Dragon Lady and lumping Joe 

They can take their quizzes and quietly go 

Back to the salt mines. 
And another song in a minor key 
To dog days in second year surgery. 
To Lattes and Harvey and V. K. Frantz 
Who gave us the long-awaited chance 
To examine authentic (!!) surgical drains 
And use our hands instead of our brains 
By inflicting wounds and trying to sew 
And watching granulations grow- 
In patients of questionable pedigrees 
Who were literally nothing but SOB's, 
And particularly we liked the convenient way 
They died of "distemper" on the first post-op day 
Thus saving us from the dubious sport 
Of having to write a progress report. 

(As if anyone ever reads them anyway.) 
But we really can't gripe for we wouldn't have missed 
Seeing Humphreys serving as a second assist. 
Another song we'd like to submit 
To Dr. Brown and parasit 

And all of the wild life that run around loose 
(To put it politely) in human refuse; 
The worms that turn and squirm and roll on 
Down to their home in the distal colon 
Where they lay their eggs and perpetrate 
Eight kinds of hell in the seats of the great. 
And a final song, or rather a cheer. 
To the spring-time part of the second year 
When we assumed at last a clinical look 
With a stethoscope and a little black book; 
When we eagerly awaited the days we would go 
To Seegal's super-colossal side show, 
Or to Bellevue with two beds in one bed's space 
And AFB all over the place. 

With Kneeland's description we became entranced 
By the area of auscultatory romance; 
Although we found when we turned our ear 
There were many murmurs we couldn't hear. 
Or to put it vice-versa, there was always the blair 
Of a mitral stenosis which wasn't there. 


That was second year but before we go 

There's a couple of laurels we'd like to throw: 

To Angell's demonstration, so lucid and clear. 

That anaphylaxis can happen here; 

To Millie for arranging her gestation 

To take advantage of spring vacation; 

To those in Bard with their paper bombs 

Which hastened the resignation of Toms; 

To the Epididymis Boys, all on the ball. 

At the show to end shows during the fall; 

To Kneeland for his many quotable quotes; 

To Gene and Paul for the bacti notes; 

And special praise was earned by those 

Who took Daddy Det's course in the eye, ear, and nose; 

To Conklin's Carol, the New Jersey lass. 

Who's at lectures more often than most of the class; 

To the few who would make weekend escapes; 

To Alice Knox and Daisy Mapes; 

To the many hepars which must have been scarred 

By that final party on the roof at Bard; 

And last but not least, a rousing cheer 

To those who must still face second year. 

(They'll wish they had gone into banking.) 


Safe on third, second year was through. 

In June of nineteen fifty two. 

Clinicians all, with pockets distended. 

The woes of the sciences basic had ended. 

Armed with tables of values normal. 

Replete with theory (anatomic and hormonal). 

We descended upon the hapless clinics 

To spread our knowledge of medical gimmicks. 

Our frozen minds were becoming thawed. 

When out the blue — came the National Board. 

Three days of brow knitting, all were concerned. 

Realizing we'd forgotten more than we learned. 

But this too passed, despite many discussions. 

Perhaps it was all a plot of the Russians. 

And so — all assembled, the sound of the gun — 

Cries of "They're off," third year had begun. 

From service to service, in three month rotations 

(anticipating our fourth year vacations). 

Five weeks of thinking pediatrically, 

Oh! Those afternoons in the OPD. 

At Miss Barry we hurled invectives. 

For all the normals and mental defectives. 

Her smiling face was a daily treat. 

As we signed our names on the attendance sheet, 

Then — "No, mother, he's not ferocious. 

Just a bit sexually precocious." 

Or — "As far as we can ascertain. 

Your little brat is perfectly sane." 

And — "Don't change the name from John to Alice. 

That's the length of a normal phallus." 

Examing each child with care and fuss. 

Learning more from the moms than they from us! 

The newborn nursery drove us mad! 

What healthy streams those bastards had! 

Lusty cries and dirty diapers — 

Our glasses needed windshield wipers. 

We became familiar with kiddy disease. 

The meaning of swollen tummies and knees, 

Tb, celiac, and cystic fibrosis, 

And all the theories of lipoid nephrosis. 

Hattie, Rusty, Riley, and Day 

Each had quite a lot to say. 

But time was short, our stay was through — 

Surgery beckoned Orthopedics, tool 

The former consisted of many frustrations. 

Watching the intern sew lacerations. 

Preceptor meetings with surgeons great. 

Day after day: "I'll be late, please wait." 

We were there on the dot of nine. 

Rare was the doc who was ever on time. 

With herniorrhaphies the OR's were buzzin'- 

We saw ingrown toenails by the dozen. 

But we waited in vain for something trickier 

Than the diagnosis of a paronychia. 

To Orthopedics we then progressed 

And learned of things we'd never guessed. 

McLaughlin's bar, just to begin. 

Is not a place for drinking gin. 

Smith-Peterson, the sly old fox. 

Was one man, not a pair of docs. 

A Judet head, it now came clear. 

Cannot be found on a glass of beer. 

Periosteal elevators, to our amazement. 

Will never take you to Macy's basement. 

We watched the use of chisel and file. 

Of saw and hammer, but all the while. 

Trying to learn the laws of traction. 

With pulleys and sandbags, and forces of action. 

Body in spica and arm in cast — 

If it doesn't come off, we'll have to blast! 

But just as we were getting the knack 

Of diagnosing the low back. 

The gong sounded, we opened the doors, 

And marched from the fifth to the eighth and ninth 

Here East was East and West was West, floors. 

Those on Center thought theirs was best. 

Though some of us put up resistance. 

We all became interns' assistants. 

We quickly learned the ward routine — 

How to keep syringes clean! 

And how to keep distinctions clear. 

Which is she: Nurse? Aid? Volunteer? 

We learned what scut work could be like. 

At midnight bending o'er the mike. 

Bloods, urines, and all the rest — 

What became of the old sink test? 

Our noses upturned at our foul plight — 

Oh! Say can you smell by the dawn's early light! 

How often we thought, while steeped in stool. 

"I should have gone to dental school!" 

But we found the job had its moments of glory, 

As we listened to the patient's story. 

Call me doctor, became our motto. 

Questioning patients in voce sotto: 

Where were you born? How much did you travel? 

How long has it been since your urine had gravel? 

How did grandpaw lose his life? 

And — do you like your present wife? 

You probe each patient — body and soul — 

You've got to see him as a whole: 

His skin, his eyes, his thinning hair. 

His spleen, his heart, his derriere. 

His fingernails, his chest, his ears. 

His income, and his groundless fears. 

Each ailing soul you thus disturb, 

So you can cope with Dr. Loeb. 

The night before the fatal day 

You brief each patient not to say 

That you have erred in any part 

Of learning his long tale by heart. 

You move the beds around the floor. 

To get the good ones near the door. 

First on the right, for a guy who's bold — 

Someone who knows his patient cold. 

This done you hurry to the dorm 

To memorize the Atchley form. 

Pacing the floor, you stay awake 

Until the dawn begins to break. 

At nine o'clock the bugle sounds. 

The Silver Fox is starting rounds. 

The Professor nods, and smiles your way — 

Pale and breathless, you begin to say: 

"This is the first PH admission 

Of this obese, jazz musician. 

Who finds that he's been out of tune 

Ever since the first of June." 

And on and on your voice relates 

Signs and symptoms, facts and dates. 

You stumble on, and near the end. 

The Professor smiles; he seems your friend. 

You think you're doing brilliantly. 

But does he think so? "Fiddle-dee-dee"; 

Strange to say, these three months flew. 

And we went on to something new. 

We could now afford to be selective. 

And each one chose his own elective. 

To Frisco, Chicago, Sir Guy's, and LA, 

On the Atcheson, Topeka. and the Santa Fe. 

Some studied hard. They had ambition. 

Others became expert at fishin'. 

But all returned with that certain hunch, 

That his elective was the best of the bunch. 

On specialties, you were really a dunce. 

If you couldn't do fifteen things at once. 

We learned the eye, in ten short days. 

By memorizing chapters in Adler and May's. 

Ophthalmoplegias and coloboma. 

The Middle East incidence of trachoma. 

Keratitis, scleritis, and synechiae, 

And what diabetes does to the eye. 

The many causes of choroiditis. 

Anomalies never ceased to delight us. 

From the A-R pupil and opacities. 

To the cherry red spot oi Toy Sach's disease. 

The terms came so thick and fast — 

As a new one was learned, we forgot the last. 

During this time, we also did hear. 

Of ills of the nose, the throat, and the ear. 

Each P.M. we performed in clinic. 

Under the eye of Bilchik, the cynic. 

He raved and ranted, but promised great things 

To the clerk who could visualize five tracheal rings. 

We learned of otitis and colds in the snout. 

And reasons for taking tonsils out. 

To tell allergy from diseases of contagia. 

The etiology of headache and dysphagia. 

From the head-mirror glare and the clinic din. 

We next came to diseases of the skin. 

We learned after looking at picture books — 

A disease is named for the way it looks. 

The macule, the papule, and comedone. 

The vesicle, pustule, and hair ingrown. 

Lichen planus, and impetigo, 

Eczyma and vitiligo. 

The erythemas: multiform and nodosum. 

Also epidermolysis bullosum. 

Psoriasis occurs on the elbows and knees. 

The calves of the legs for Bazin's disease. 

The treatment of these is very simple. 

Whether you're peeling or have a pimple. 

It all comes in a little white jar — 

Containing Lotio Alba or just coal tar. 

Thence to Neuro, with hammers and pins. 

To stick patients' feet and tap their shins. 

We learned to make the diagnosis 

Of CVA and multiple sclerosis. 

Tabes dorsalis, and ALS, 

Astrocytoma? What's your guess? 

Syringomyelia or cercival rib. 

In octogenarians and babes in a crib. 

Psychiatry taught us to know our lives. 

Reasons for beating our mothers and wives. 

How we act, what we say. 

Why some work and others play. 

Why some drink, and others fear spaces. 

And even why some like to bet on races. 

But Pollitin says: "Have no fear. 

Even if swinging from a chandelier. 

Or other such places quite informal — 

If it P in V — brother, its normal!" 

Mechanisms like symbolization. 

Suppression, displacement, and sublimation. 

Reaction formation, and introjection — 

All exist for our own protection! 

Our interactions with society 

Tend to create anxiety; 

And those of us who go overboard 

Wind up on the Psycho ward. 

And there to stay, for all to see — 

There, but for the grace of God, go we! 

And so — a wonderful year was through, 

(We should mention Ob lectures. Public Health, too) 

Nov/ we'd nearly reached the height — 

As our last — fourth — year rolled into sight! 


Came the fourth year our fate was fixed 
When we were split into equal sixths. 
And days to weeks to months might pass 
Without seeing anyone else in class. 
For some were on Group, taking care 
Of well-worn medical chinaware: 

(Armed with a love of honest work 
and the manual of Dr. Merck.) 
The senile male with SOB, 
BPH. and PND; 

The "flashing" lady of forty-eight 
Who's constipated and overweight. 
Who burps and tingles, and occasionally faints. 
And has a written list of chief complaints; 




t ♦ 


* — 

> ' 


Who's ihe student . . . ? 

The Puerto Rican with mucho dolor. 
With incomprehensible troubles galore — 
And an interpreter who speaks no English. 

(All the above, by the way, 

Usually come labelled "Interest A," 

And mention should be made of the "Interest C 

With periarteritis and Whipple's disease.) 
Others were spending their two months down 
At St. Luke's. Roosevelt. Cooperstown 
Or at Goldwater getting the initial thrills 
Of playing doctor and pushing pills. 
And learning the panacean way 
Of TLC and ASA. 

Some were on specialties, that jubilee. 
Where you go to class from ten to three 

With two hours off for lunch. 
Where the mornings are spent on an X-Ray rack. 
And the afternoons with the GU tract; 
Where we ferried to Staten Island to see 
The dire results of P. in V. 
But specialties' major justification 

Was: it preceded — or followed — our month's vacation. 
Those down at Bellevue joined the race 
To find an empty parking space. 
Then headed for wards so closely knit 
The patients have no place to sit — 

(Fooled youl) 
Where one can scan the EKG 
Of boozers from the Bowery, 
And every patient aims to please 
By having more than one disease. 
A month where everything you ask 
Is filtered through a paper mask. 
Where every breath of air you take 
May make your apices opaque. 

(Man, we're real Ghon.) 
Some were on surgery, slicing disease. 
Becoming clinical orderlies 
By drawing the bloods and other chores 
Like starting infusions and scrubbing floors; 
Standing for hours without food or rest 

While they shunted their shunts and removed their breasts 
And if you were lucky, once in a while. 
Tying a knot on some stray pile. 
Others at Babies, with infinite pains, 
lamming man-sized needles into child-sized veins; 
Examining the monsters, learning to shun 
The endless screams, being P-P'd upon. 
And acting as a neurotic mother's guide 
As we contemplated infanticide. 
While some in pajamas would sweat and strain 
Where life's just one big labor pain. 
With sleepless nights and restless days, 
With LOT's and DOA's; 

The residents roaring in constant alarm, ^^ 

The double-decked dorm with its neighboring farm. 
The calm multip, who just for fun 
Delivers baby on the run. 

Come June with the oath of Hippocrates. 
We'll emerge at last mature M.D.'s, 
Out on our own to cure disease. 
To heal the sick, and split the fees; 
With a wonder drug for each low back. 
Suave with the hypochondriac. 
A confident finger in the cul de sac. 
We'll drive around in our Cadillac 

(On high test gasoline). 
For four long years we've struggled hard, 
Our backs are bent, our brains are scarred. 
The passing parade we can't retard. 
So we bid farewell to life at Bard; 
Our high estate we abdicate 
And one last pearl we dedicate 
To those who would us emulate: 
(Pardon us while we lacrimate). 


All of this . . . was writ by me. 
Gene, and Foster, and Marv

Since 1928 when it was founded as an associate of the Intercollegiate 
YMCA, the P<SS Club has played a leading part in planning and carrying 
out many of the extra-curricular activities of its members — all the students 
at P<SS. 

Expert guidance is given the Club by a director salaried by the YMCA 
and by the members of the faculty advisory board, all of whom are board 
members by virtue of their interest in the students. 

Under the leadership of a president, vice-president, and secretary, all 
elected yearly from the student body, the Club runs a program ranging 
from bi-weekly feature films to speakers on non-medical subjects; from bas- 
ketball and squash tournaments to weekly vesper services in the Harkness 
Memorial Chapel. In fact, it is one of the primary aims of the P&S Club to be 
as flexible and responsive to student needs as possible. 

Last year, to assure continuity of the P&S Yearbook, the Club assumed 
responsibility for its annual publication by making the yearbok staff a per- 
manent club committee. 

In September a special program of welcome for the entering class pro- 
vided, by means of talks, tours of the Medical Center, and informal socializing, 
a pleasant introduction to a memorable four years. This was such a success 
that it is intended as a permanent part of the club activities. 

Another valuable part of the program is the work of the Benefits Committee, 
which collects used textbooks, clothing, and lab. equipment to aid the 
Salonika Medical School in Thesalonika, Greece. 

In these activities, as in the planning and implementation of theater parties, 
square dances, ping-pong tournaments — not to mention the two biggest social 
events of the school year, the Christmas Party and the Spring Festival — the 
enthusiasm and ideas of the students participating is the reason for their 
great success.

^Jhe (JSardd 

The Bards' reputation as one of the finest non-professional singing groups 
of its kind has become well established. It no longer seems necessary to 
retrace its history or recreate its origins on these pages, for the group has 
achieved in the short space of eight years a venerableness and respect 
usually reserved for clubs with only the most ancient and dusty of traditions. 
The Bards also have their traditions, some of which are uncommonly moist 
as traditions go, but very traditional as close harmony groups go, and other 
traditions which mutely evidence those spirits of fellowship and congeniality 
which have always characterized the successful blending of good voices and 
personable young men. Singing at many of the more interesting girls' col- 
leges and at certain parties and dances associated with the Medical Center 
has provided relief from and contrast with their normal medical school routine. 

Belonging to the Bards has always been a privilege and an enjoyment to 
its members. These sentiments are constantly reaffirmed as old graduate 
members nostalgically return to the informal rehearsals at Bard Hall and join 
in once more — very spiritually if not accurately — with the current generation, 
forming a constantly swelling throng "whose voices mount like the whirling 
wind" — our Bards.

With unusual devotion to the finer things of life, Upsilon Sigma of Phi Chi 
this year has continued the tradition of playing a role in both the social 
and intellectual milieux. Phi Chi's two-fold answer to Pearl Mesta, Charlie 
Sickles and Bill Ciaravino, with many assists, have enveloped the Chapter 
in numerous dance-parties, all of which were delightful (pleasing, enjoyable, 
attractive, that is). The interstitial spaces were filled with a number of stag 
beer parties (reserved gatherings, brawls, songfests) with the almost inevitable 
result of having the "combined chorus" raise its voice to horrendous heights 
in accompaniment to Don Watt's guitar. Then, of course, there was the annual 
New York Phi Chi Interchapter Dance at Bard Hall in mid-Winter. And thus 
it went! 

Serving as a neat transition between the purely social and the purely intel- 
lectual were the frequent dinner meetings with speakers, topped, per- 
haps, by the Fall Initiation Banquet, when we were fortunate enough to have 
as our guest Dr. Louis Bauer, Secretary-General of the World Medical Asso- 
ciation. Then, too, we managed a few beery bull-sessions with some of our 
numerous faculty alumni — topics ranged considerably. 

At the strictly intellectual end of the spectrum of activities, we were blessed 
by the lecture series initiated by Ray Wunderlich. Subjects ranged from the 
sublime — "Cor Triloculare Biatriatum" presented by Dan Pettee — to the 
psychopathic — "Childhood Schizophrenia" presented by Dick Rifkind. 

As is inevitable, it was a good year!

The Gamma chapter of Phi Delta Epsilon is in the process of enjoying one 
of its most successful years in recent history, and this year also had the 
benefit of a large pledge group. 

The activities of the fraternity began immediately after the start of the 
school year. In October a dance was held at Bard Hall, and as a part of the 
chapter's policy of activities with other metropolitan chapters, the Flower 
Fifth Ave. chapter was invited. 

The fraternity continued with its series of chapter dinners; and at the initia- 
tion dinner Dr. Emmanuel Papper, Professor of Anaesthesiology at PtSS, dis- 
cussed some of the non-technical aspects of his field. 

This year the chapter's rushing program included an innovation; namely, 
inviting several alumni in Phi Delta Epsilon to one of the rushing parties and 
giving them the opportunity to discuss post-graduate aspects of fraternity 
membership. It is hoped to continue this policy in the future. 

Returning to the social field, the fraternity had another dance on January 
9th with Phi Delta Epsilon men from Cornell, Bellevue, and New York State 
Medical School in Brooklyn. In the spring the chapter held its annual Inter- 
chapter dance, also at Bard Hall.

It was just seventy-two years ago that five second year students at the 
University of Michigan Medical School gathered in a small room on Ann 
Street in Ann Arbor to found Nu Sigma Nu. Of these five (who all graduated 
the following year, since medical school then was never longer than three 
years), the name William J. Mayo stands out most prominently, since he went 
on to found another great institution — the Mayo Clinic. 

Nu Sigma Nu may have changed a great deal since those early days . . . 
its current membership reaches astronomical figures, in widespread local 
chapters . . . but the caliber of its men clearly has not changed one iota. At a 
dinner in the early part of the year, Dr. Edmund P. Fowler, chairman of the 
Department of Otolaryngology, asked for time to make a special presentation. 
He had been given a rather well-constructed anatomical model to be awarded 
to a capable and deserving student at P&S. His choice — our president, Pete 
Westerhoff. Indeed, Osier, Welch, Cushing, Zinsser, Blalock, and all the other 
famous old members may yet be relegated to places of obscurity by the 
"young blood" of Nu Sig! 

When the fraternity wishes to confer an honor upon a truly outstanding 
member, it may name him Honorary Aesculapius at one of its biennial con- 
ventions. However, during our welcoming dinner for the new members the 
usual process was reversed; and Aesculapius this time received the honor. 
His award was a grand tour of Presbyterian Hospital with Dr.. Calvin H. 
Plimpton, to the great delight of all listeners. Dr. Plimpton may find himself 
dubbed Honorary Aesculapius for that effort alone! 

The hilarity that has become traditional with Iota chapter was as much in 
evidence as ever. Meetings were well supplied with beer; dances boasted a 
well-stocked bar and lively music. Cruel inflation did rear its ugly head briefly, 
leaving us with somewhat higher dues and more expensive drinks, but the 
undaunted spirit of Nu Sigma Nu leads bravely on; and the steadily growing 
membership must follow.

Alpha Omega Alpha is a national medical honor society which has been 
represented at P&S since 1907. The initials A.O.A. are derived from the first 
letters of three Greek words meaning: "To be worthy to serve the suffering." 

With this motto, the society aims at fostering both the scientific and philo- 
sophical aspects of medicine. It encourages research and attempts to recog- 
nize those who have attained distinction or made some particular contribution 
to medicine and its allied fields. 

Twice a year candidates from the student body are elected to membership 
on the basis of scholarship alone. The functions of the group are social and 
intellectual. Banquets and social gatherings are combined with seminars, 
colloquia, or lectures on various topics.

The Omega Club is a society composed of forty-five 
undergraduate members from the second, third and 
fourth year classes, faculty members and about six 
hundred graduate physicians practicing throughout the 
country. It was founded in 1892; its activities have 
alternated between academic and social functions. 
During the past few years they have been chiefly so- 
cial and have consisted of several cocktail parties each 
year and an annual banquet.

On October 12, 1953 the Columbia-Presbyl 
terian Medical Center celebrated its twenty! 
fifth anniversary with an outstanding series ol 
seminars and exhibits. No Yearbook would bJ 
complete without some recognition of thia 
event. We feel, as Dean Rappleye did in his 
American Journal of Medicine Editorial*, thai 
there is no more appropriate way of doincl 
this than by quoting the words of Presidenl 
Nicholas Murray Butler at the ground-breakincl 
ceremonies in 1928 — for we have seen the full 
fillment of his far-reaching predictions. 

"The first turning of the soil on this spot iJ 
the . . . beginning of the accomplishment of cl 
dream that has been in the minds of many ol 
us for a generation past. It signifies that at lasl 
the two aspects of medicine — the scientific ancl 
the philanthropic — are to be united ... as pari 
of a new and vital union of organization, cJ 
purpose, and of public service. It means that cl 
fully equipped university shall hereafter havil 
at the service of its teachers in medicine aij 
ample and thoroughly modern series of laboral 
tories and clinics. It means that a noble hosl 
pital . . . commands the very best that science! 
academic experience and personal devotiorl 
can give to ground the service of the hospital 
on the unshakeable foundation of moderrl 
science in all of its many sided phases. 

Here on this site . . . we propose to build cl 
monument more lasting than bronze whicrl 
shall testify alike to the growing power ol 
human knowledge to minister to the physical 
and mental ills of man and to the zeal of civil 
ized man to help and to cure his less fortunate

Said Harry M. to Elvin A. 
One bright and sunny morning 
"Oh, Elvin. dear, come over here, 
I've something nice to show you." 

So Elvin A. did take a look 
At what his friend had wrote 
And thereupon the shout arose, 
"Now that will get their goat." 

So now my friends the rumor's out 

(Though we're really all in doubt) 

On THIS exam there'll be no endless dribble 

For the choice is ours — the answers are multiple. 

And as the weekend sadly nears 

And hours of study rule the day 

We'll think again of days gone by 

When men were men — and Bac T questions essay. 

A question is a dirty thing 

To make you trip and fall. 

A quiz is bad — exams are worse 

Let's have no tests at all.

"Tuesday should be a happy day 
For members of the present class 
Who wonder if they're going to pass. 
But they all have reason to rejoice. 
When given a chance at multiple choice. 
The answer's plain as plain should be 
For anyone who knows Bac T."

of you and your classmates upon your school life achieve 
# immortality in a carefully planned and executed yearbook. 

From the arid desert of Arizona, and the sultry green island 
of Puerto Rico, to the snow-blanketed slopes of Northern 
New England, we have traveled, happy and proud to have 
been an instrument in the translating into print, the humor 
pathos, excitement, and sentiment found in the campus 
9 life of over seventy-five colleges and preparatory schools. 

As former members of yearbook staffs tn our school days, 

we bring into our professional duties a real understanding 

of the many proems confronting each yearbook editor.
